Trevor Noah is speaking out after the Grammys banned Kanye West from performing at this year’s award ceremony due to “concerning online behavior.”
“I said counsel Kanye not cancel Kanye,” The Daily Show host, who also happens to be hosting the Grammys this year, tweeted.
Aside from continually harassing and threatening his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Pete Davidson on social media and in music videos, Ye also used a racial slur against Noah after he addressed the feud on his show. Shortly after, the rapper was served a 24-hour suspension from Instagram.
Noah responded to the post with words of concern in a Daily Show segment. “You’re an indelible part of my life Ye. Which is why it breaks my heart to see you like this,” he said. “I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that’s dangerously close to peril and pain.”
See Noah’s tweet below.
West was not in the initial wave of performers that was announced earlier this week; however, even though he won’t be performing during the show, he is nominated for five Grammys, including Album of the Year for Donda.
The 64th Annual Grammy Awards will be held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3. Hosted by Trevor Noah, the show will broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS and will be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
